Arlington Artists Alliance Hosts New Show

The Arlington Artists Alliance is hosting a new exhibit called Horses of a Different Color at Gallery Underground, located at 2100 Crystal Dr., Arlington, in the venue’s Focus Gallery through Friday, Nov. 25. An opening reception for the show was held on Friday, Nov. 4.

The exhibit features the work of Meg Mackenzie, whose artwork is based on a deep love of horses. Mackenzie is an abstract painter whose award-winning work has become a popular favorite in the DC-metro area.

“For the last few years, I have dedicated my artwork towards celebrating the majestic power and beauty of the horse,” she said. In addition to a new all-media members show in the Main Gallery, also featured are the sculptures of Trinka Roeckelein and jewelry of Kat Jamieson.

Arlington Artists Alliance is also preparing for its 14th Annual Artful Weekend, which will be held from Friday, Nov. 18 – Sunday, Nov. 20 at the Hendry House at Ft. C.F. Smith Park, located at 2411 N. 24th St., Arlington.
